If we were to track trending topics in games, the notion of "transhumanism" would be on a slow rise. You have the well received Freemarket, created by Jared Sorensen (Memento Mori Theatricks) and Luke Crane (Burning Wheel), and from Catalyst Game Labs you have the slick and inviting Eclipse Phase.

Eclipse Phase is already on my bookshelf, and Freemarket will very soon be a welcome addition. I have just one little problem with the setup, though. Either every game which aspires to represent transhumanism is flawed (out of necessity, no less), or the notion of transhumanism itself is a steaming load of bunk.

Realigning, aligning, or juggling?

New blog-posting client, new theme (which actually says something, if only "I play like a fracking lunatic"), and I'm starting to tweak the look into something I can live with.

But there's oh so much I still have to do.

(If you dreaded the notion of reading more gaming spew from me this quickly, then rest easy and skip this post. It's pure meta.)

Mapping on the job

Yes, it's another post where I start talking about D&D, so naturally I first refer to GURPS.

No, really.

Thinking Outside the Power Description

I hereby inaugurate this brand spanking new blog with a post about... well, what else? Dungeons & Dragons, 4th Edition. Not that I'll be talking about it all the time (in fact, I'd rather not), but I might as well kick things off by explaining why I selected the name that I did above.
